Coupled with Maurice Blanchot and his literary discourse on dispossession and the outside (analogous to becoming), Tan's inquiry is critically engaged inside a moving image practice. READ MORE

    Abstract : Sedan 2000-talet har den Europeiska Unionen (EU) lanserat biodrivmedel som ett alternativ för att uppnå minskad klimatpåverkan men också landsbygdsutveckling i globala Syd. Den kritiska debatten pekar dock på att biodrivmedel snarare försvårar införandet av mer meningsfulla åtgärder för att minska växthusgasutsläpp från transport; samt att utlovade arbetstillfällen lyser med sin frånvaro, samtidigt som lokalbefolkningens försörjningsmöjligheter ofta begränsas när tillgången till viktiga naturresurser som mark och vatten begränsas eller skärs av.
